Sic ‘Em Soulbeast is a strong bruiser with great ranged damage and spike as well as good 1v1 potential. Power Soulbeast also has the dubious distinction of being one of the most reworked and nerfed specs in the game due to its tendency to stomp new players.

While it is still strong and performs extremely well in certain matchups, Soulbeast is currently hampered by the number of Harbringers and Tempests in the meta, as both classes spam projectile block.

Damage

Soulbeast is a modifier-based damage dealer, meaning most of their damage is going to be concentrated in certain spikes. As an example, your longbow burst combines Twice as Vicious (5%), Furious Strength (7%), Oppressive Superiority (10%), "Sic 'Em!" (25%), Loud Whistle (10%), Sigil of Separation (5%), and Sigil of Exploitation (5%) for a total of a 67% damage boost on top of your considerable base damage.

In teamfights, your best AOE damage comes from combining Barrage with One Wolf Pack . These two skills together pulse an enormous amount of cleave that can be dropped on a node or on a downed body. You can also cleave in melee with the Maul Worldly Impact combo or with the greatsword auto attack chain. For longtime ranger players, keep in mind that Enduring Swing is no longer an evade.

Try to combine Maul and Worldly Impact to benefit from the 25% damage buff of Moment of Clarity that Maul gives you.

Sustain

Sic ‘Em Soulbeast has good access to active and passive sustain from the Wilderness Survival traitline and from your Greatsword skills. All of your Survival skills clear conditions and grant you Fury, and you get Protection on every dodge. Natural Vigor gives you a constant 25% endurance regeneration that combines well with your Vigor to give you more evasion uptime.

Troll Unguent is one of the best heals in the game, it can be used nearly off cooldown for constant healing and it procs Child of Earth for some passive Immobilize.

Aside the from obvious Stealth source in form of Hunter's Shot, you can Stealth by blasting Smoke Cloud with Worldly Impact and leaping through it with Swoop. Use Smoke Cloud if your team doesn’t have a Thief so your team can blast Stealth before a team fight.

Crowd Control

Soulbeast has good single-target Crowd Controls that can be chained together fairly easily. Your Smokescale periodically will use Takedown; this is a great place to start a Crowd Control chain if your opponent doesn’t have a stunbreak. Other CCs include the active Takedown in Beastmode , Point-Blank Shot , and Point-Blank Shot .

You can combo these CCs together easily to keep opponents in your damage. Try to save your strongest CCs like Hilt Bash until you’ve seen several dodges and stunbreaks.

Pets

Soulbeast no longer has access to pet swapping in combat, so you want to stay in Smokescale while engaged. Out of combat, however, you can swap to Siamoth to use Forage to get Consume Plasma which gives you every boon in the game for a short period of time.
